Post-graduate fellowships in objects and/or furniture conservation
Historic New England

Historic New England is seeking applications for two postgraduate
fellowships: an 18-month fellowship beginning in spring 2006 and a
12-month fellowship beginning fall 2006.  Projects for the year will
focus on the treatment of objects from Castle Tucker, an intact
Victorian Household in Wiscasset, Maine, and Beauport, the summer
retreat of interior designer Henry Sleeper in Gloucester,
Massachusetts. Collections from both houses include American and
European decorative arts, furniture, and textiles dating from the
mid-19th through the mid-20th centuries.  Treatments will also
include material from Historic New England's 33 other historic
properties and from the permanent collection stored at the
Collections and Conservation Center, as well as, participation in
preventive conservation projects, including storage upgrades and
survey's, and occasional travel to Historic New England sites.

Candidates must be graduates of a conservation training program or
have equivalent experience and be legally entitled to work in the
United States. The stipend for both fellowships is $25,000 a year
plus benefits.  The fellowships are based in Historic New England's
conservation lab located in the Collections and Conservation Center
in Haverhill, MA approximately 45 minutes north of Boston.  Please
send a curriculum vitae and letter of interest by March 30, 2006 to:
